Wisdom Sharing–A Deepening Retreat at Ghost Ranch

Workshop ID: G14S1023
Dates: October 13, 2014 - October 17, 2014 Price: $455- $900

With these illustrious leaders, Alice Walker, Gloria Steinem and Dr. Chung Hyun Kyung, we will explore ways to support growth and the development of the feminine voice and balanced leadership in the world today.

The Intention:

  • To create a gathering where a “deep sharing” of Women’s Wisdom occurs.
  • To allow women and men to be stirred, taught and guided by exceptional teachers/mentors–women who have deep feminine wisdom and life experience as well as deep investment with activism and the feminist movement.
  • To break open and explore the breath and depth of the gift of the feminine voice and feminine leadership in our world today.
  • To support the continued growth and development of an intergenerational movement including women and men which honors and embraces the integration of the feminine voice and leadership.
  • To gather in a sacred landscape that embodies the wisdom and beauty of the deep and sacred feminine and provides an expansive space for creativity, healing, and self-discovery.

For an affordable lodging option Ghost Ranch offers rustic dorm guest rooms that that hold up to six guests. Share the cost for an economical way to be immersed in this magnificent landscape and experience this once-in-a-lifetime event! Communal bathrooms and showers are located down a breezeway.

Alice Walker is an internationally celebrated author, poet and activist whose books include seven novels, four collections of short stories, four children’s books, and volumes of essays and poetry. She’s best known for The Color Purple, the 1983 novel for which she won the Pulitzer Prize—the first African American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, though (in her opinion) not the first African American woman to deserve it—and the National Book Award. The award-winning novel was adapted for Steven Spielberg’s 1985 film and later for the stage, opening at New York City’s Broadway Theatre in 2005, winning a Tony Award for best leading actress in a musical in 2006.

Gloria Steinem is a writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist. She travels in this and other countries as an organizer and lecturer and is a frequent media spokeswoman on issues of equality. She is particularly interested in the shared origins of sex and race caste systems, gender roles and child abuse as roots of violence, non-violent conflict resolution, the cultures of indigenous peoples, and organizing across boundaries for peace and justice.

In 1999, she lived for a year in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas studying mediation. Now she is in the process of becoming a dharma teacher at the Kwan Eum Zen School in New York City. She first came to international attention in 1991, when she made a now famous speech– a feminist/Asian/ Third World interpretation of the Holy Spirit–at the World Council of Churches in Canberra, Australia.
